It's a long way from her former life in a Romanian pound. Sara was taken to the Radauti shelter by the dog catchers, it is not known if she has had a family before. If she had a home previously the shelter would have been a huge shock, a cold, horrid place especially in winter time as there is no heating and kennels are overcrowded, filthy and brutal.
Most of the dogs in Romania are either dumped on the streets, taken to public shelters, which are horrendous places, born on the streets having to fend for themselves and facing all kinds of dangers. Starvation being the biggest threat, plus beatings, torture, being hit by cars or even killed for money.
The streets are a cruel place. Some also suffer horrendous cruelty from owners and the lucky ones are taken to private shelters where they are looked after until homes can be found for them.
Sara is a friendly girl who gets on well with people and older children, she is not so good with very young children, so children no younger than 7 would be advised. Sara likes to be the top dog over the rest of the females she is in with, so either a home where she is the sole dog or with a submissive dog. Despite her start in life, and the fact in kennels she seemed older than her 7 years, now she is in a home environment she is thriving. In fact she seems to have found the puppy in her and is very playful and full of life. She also loves her cuddles and has a lot of love to give. She desperately needs a forever home now where she can continue to thrive and have the love she so deserves. That love will be gien back tenfold by this gorgeous girl.
